The company Canadian BlackBerry has surprised his audience with the introduction of two new terminals. Now that the economic and financial results are not as expected, the firm has delivered to the achievement of a new version of its operating system called BlackBerry OS 10 and a pair of terminals. The first, dubbed BlackBerry Z10 has a multitouch screen and ignores the classic keyboard QWERTY had hitherto distinguished the firm. The second, which concerns us, is named BlackBerry Q10 and sports a look similar to the devices of a lifetime, but it comes equipped with the latest version of this operating system and multiple social functions. The terminal also combines the properties of its QWERTY keyboard with a multitouch screen sea of useful, albeit small in size.
Your sheet is very complete. Apart from having a powerful dual-core processor, this BlackBerry Q10 is planted with a good eight-megapixel camera with plenty of features to keep in touch with our friends.Yes, thanks to BlackBerry Hub easily enjoy applications like Facebook , LinkedIN , Twitter or Foursquare , and many others. BlackBerry has also reached various agreements to offer its customers such interesting applications such as Angry Birds , games EA Games or storage service in the cloud DropBox . Then we discuss the technical details of the BlackBerry Q10 with great detail.
The BlackBerry Q10 is not surprising in the design section. And it respects blindly habitual patterns of the main devices of the company. Complies with dimensions of 119.6 x 66.8 x 10.4 mm and weighs around139 grams . It is, as you see, in a lightweight and a bit wider than usual because of its keyboard.Accommodates a touchscreen that occupies part of the front surface, but only has 3.1 inches . It’s a Super AMOLED capacitive touch panel with a resolution of 720 x 720 pixels and a depth of up to 16 million colors . It has, without fanfare, a density of 328 pixels per inch , a detail that lends a quality more considerable.
In the bottom of the screen we ran into one of the most classic BlackBerry : the keyboard. It is, as has become tradition, a full QWERTY keyboard that we will be especially useful when creating long messages, write and manage our email or enjoy instant messaging. Pleasant for those who are very used to this method of writing and often communicate every moment with your friends, family or colleagues.Moreover, the phone comes in a rugged housing, pleasant to the touch and easy to hold thanks to its texture. We’ll find it in stores in two colors : black and white. At least for now and until BlackBerry says otherwise.
BlackBerry wanted to provide its new BlackBerry Q10 with a high quality camera. No distinctions with his older sister, the BlackBerry Z10 , this also features a camera with eight megapixels sensor , useful for capturing images at a resolution of 3,264 x 2,448 pixels . But this camera has other elements that make it special. We refer to autofocus, LED flash, geotagging , the image stabilization or face detection .These functions enhance subsequent capture and image processing. Thanks to LED flash , integrated into the rear of the device, you can capture quality pictures on a regular or even noticeable, but are in very low-light conditions or even at night. We may also record HD video in 1080p HD . As good smartphone now also has an integrated second chamber should be on the front. We will be very useful for video calls or self-portraits.
Memory and power
The potential of a device like the one in question is measured by analyzing the properties of your processor.In this case, we can ensure that the BlackBerry Q10 has a heart of Cortex A9 dual core , capable of operating at a clock frequency of 1.5 GHz . This chip reconciles its functions with a PowerVR SGX544 GPU for correct processing graphics and combines performance with 2 GB of RAM , said soon. It should be noted this fact, because it is unusual to find with 2GB on a device upper-middle range. In recent times, we have only seen this capability in latest generation mobile . With respect to the user memory, we can indicate that we can use up to 16GB of internal memory . It is a large space to store more without problems or limitations our photos, music collections, and video applications . However, with this extension if we did not have enough, we will have the opportunity to expand the property with microSD memory cards . Here are permitted cards up to 64 GB maximum.
BlackBerry has presented a preview BlackBerry 10 , the new operating system that will operate with its gleaming terminals. Actually this is a revised edition of the classic BlackBerry OS , but the fact is that should score some changes very important. The first, and most obvious, is the integration of the major social networks: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Foursquare , whose activity is centralized in the notification center, also called BlackBerry Hub . This includes significant improvements in the user interface , the design has changed significantly for the better: now fresh and intuitive, but also in the camera , with more features to improve the capture, the predictive keyboard , a formula that facilitates introduction of words and writing a lot quicker, or a multitasking system much more powerful.
Moreover, the phone comes with a multitude of applications for managing contacts, personal diary, the GPS as a browser , save files in the cloud or watch content via streaming . As reported by the own BlackBerry , the BlackBerry Q10 comes with the following standard applications installed: BlackBerry ® Hub, Contacts, Browser, Calendar, BBM, text messages, BlackBerry ® World, Remember, Docs To Go, Pictures, Music, Videos, Story Maker, BlackBerry ® Maps, Games, YouTube ®, BlackBerry ® Newsstand, Voice Command, Weather, Clock, Calculator, Compass, File Manager, Box, Dropbox BlackBerry ® connection, Print To Go, Smart Tags, Parameters , Adobe ® Reader, Telephone / Camera / Time Shift, Settings, Help, SIM Toolkit and searches.
There will, moreover, the ability to download extra content : games, utilities, news, etc..

They will be available the following: Angry Birds, Skype, Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, MLB at Bat, ESPN, Accuweather, Delta, Foursqueare, Jetpack Joyride, Where’s My Water?, EA Games, Gameloft, LinkedIN, ooVoo, The Economist, Box, DropBox, Rdio, Songza, TuneIn, New York Times, Cisco WebEx, WSJ, Bloomberg, Fox, BMC Software, Amazon Kindle, Cut the Rope, HP Print, ABC, Plants vs Zombies, Shark Dash, Me’ns Health, Cosmopolitan or Globe News.
The BlackBerry Q10 , unlike her older sister, not an LTE terminal . Works over GSM 850/900/1800/1900and HSDPA , which means that at most, the user may choose to connectivity with 3G networks , to the maximum speed offered by each operator. In addition, as with virtually all advanced terminals, theBlackBerry Q10 supports wireless networking 802.11 a / b / g / n to allow users to access anywireless network is available, whether you are at home and if they want connect at work. The phone also features Wi-Fi Hotspot , useful tool for other devices anchored to your 3G connection and can extend connectivity to laptop or tablet we have at hand.
Moreover, the device features technology support Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP and has a chip NFC (Near Field Communication) . It is planted with assisted GPS that can be used to run some applications that require it, but also to use our smartphone like a dedicated GPS for the car or in our urban routes. Note that BlackBerry has its own mapping service, BlackBerry Maps .
In the field of physical connections, we can state that the BlackBerry Q10 meets the minimum. It aims entry microUSB 2.0 for connecting your phone to your computer and synchronize content or updates, a slot for microSD cards up to 32 GB and a 3.5 mm output for headphones .
Music, FM Radio and Podcast, Video
The BlackBerry Q10 is perfectly suited for playback of multimedia content. So much so, that in his official technical details a comprehensive list of accepted formats, both image, audio or video. They are the following, in this order of category: BMP, WBMP, JPG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, SGI, TGA, 3GP, 3GP2, M4A, M4V, MOV, MP4, MKV, MPEG-4, AVI, ASF, WMV, WMA, MP3, MKA, AAC, AMR, F4V, WAV, MP2PS, MP2TS, AWB, OGG, FLAC.

It has TBD Radio and various platforms for multimedia content management, player and direct access to applications such as YouTube to playback content via streaming . It includes document and image viewer and organizer.
It is one of the most controversial issues. And sometimes, the official balances are not adjusted to reality.Bear in mind, in any case, that the battery life will always depend on external factors such as the state of the network or the actual use made by the user of the machine’s functions. In this case, the BlackBerry Q10 has a lithium ion battery with a capacity of 1800 milliamps , identical to that of the BlackBerry Z10 . The owner guarantees a range of 10 hours talk time (3G) and 13 hours on standby . You’ll have to check it yourself, as I said at the beginning, if these times suit the operation logically you make the device and then take the appropriate conclusions.
We recommend the new BlackBerry Q10 whether you are a faithful to BlackBerry and if you feel weakness for QWERTY physical. They tend to be more useful if often chat or if you use your device to email heavy. Particularly striking is the integration of all social functions to new BlackBerry 10 operating system , but also the integration of a dual core processor with 2 GB of RAM and a camera of eight megapixels , specially equipped for the occasion. The screen is a bit small, but it should be noted that many efforts will be made via the keyboard . It generally is a powerful phone, ideal for those users who want to carry your office in your pocket and enjoy while an intense social life throughout the networks.
